Abstract

The impressive technological advances in the generation of ultrashort XUV and soft X-ray light pulses have triggered the quest for novel techniques, able to characterize these pulses in the temporal domain. In this chapter we will present and discuss the most important methods for temporal pulse characterization, with particular emphasis on attosecond pulses generated by high-order harmonics and on femtosecond soft X-ray pulses emitted by free electron lasers.

Keywords

Attosecond Pulse Optical Cycle Autocorrelation Trace Linac Coherent Light Source Isolate Attosecond Pulse 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
